A letter for my baby.....

Dear Brooke or Ian,

I cannot believe you are going to be here anyday now! I am a little sad I won't be feeling you squiring around in my belly anymore. Even though it can be very weird and sometimes painful, I have gotton a lot of joy out of watching my belly warp as you wiggle. I love finding your feet and poking them to have move them away.You love kicking them in my ribs, I think you may be a soccer player. Right now I have you all to myself and I don't have to share you with anyone. Daddy does feel and watch but its not the same for him as it is for me. He can see and feel your hiccups and kicks on th eoutside, and I feel them on the inside. He dosen't get woken up in the middle of the night because you are awake and kicking him! And he hasen't had the chance to feel the pain of your foot in his ribs, lucky him!

Watching you grow inside me has been such an amazing experience for the both of us, and now we get to watch you grow on the outside. Mommy and Daddy already have so much love for you. It's crazy to think th elove we have right now will tremendously increase when we have you in our arms.

The world you are about to enter can be a scary place, and we promise to protect you as best as possible. We want to be the type of parents you can come to when you need advice, have concerns, when you are scared, lonley, frustarted, happy, mad or maybe just need to talk. We plan on being very open with you and by doing this hope to have a close relationship. We want to be the type of family that eats dinner together, has family game nights, and goes on family vacations. We will support you with your decisions and help you acheive your goals. For the next 18 years we are responsible for you and we promise to mak ethem the best 18 years any kid could ask for by caring fo ryou with all the love we have. Always remember, no matter what happens, we will be there fo ryou and will always love you. There is nothing you can do to take that away.

I am about 10 days away from my due date and not sure it has actually hit Daddy and me. It has been easy these past 9 months to say we are going to be Mom and Dad, but to actually imagine ourselves with a little baby is difficult to do. We have had many converations about if you are a boy or a girl, what will you look like? Will you have Mommy's brown eye's or Daddy's crazy 2 different color eyes? How much hair will you have? Whatever you are, you are half me, and half Dan (daddy), which makes you perfect!!!
